romney will. neil: all right. i'm surprised it's not the president. >> it's not the president. neil: congressman, thank you, very much. we are nine minutes away from the first debate, and each side has got so many recommendations it gets old, but the one consistent one that you hear from mitt romney tonight is this -- show some passion, get aggressive, get in your face. is this the night the mormon goes storming? pat buchanan on that after this. ♪ ...seems like you guys got a little gassed out there. enough already. c'mon guys. next question. hello! what's your favorite color? what's my favorite color? yes. purple. what's your favorite animal? sea turtle. what's your bedtime? do you believe in space aliens? ...i love puppies. hash browns or home fries? home fries. do you like my dress? why can't you guys ask good questions like this?

. in many ways that's happening because of early voting all right. so romney needs to change the trajectory in some way. now, that washington post is actually good news for romney in a sense he is winning the expectations game. people assume that obama will be better. so that may mean he doesn't have to do as well as all that to surprise people and say this guy is really up to the job. but the pressure is really on romney to change the direction of this race and to, you know, let people know it's not necessarily over. that can be done in various debates. but this first one is going to form the most impressions. >> john harwood says only twice have these televised debates seemed to shift the outcome of the race. in 2004 george w. bush went up against al gore. in gore's case, a strategist thought he lost that debate in the spin room. so i wonder, matt, how much of this is decided by what the candidates actually say? and how much by the pundits the day after? >> i give the american people some credit. i think they can listen and watch. and most evidence has shown that people start paying atten
channel. coincidence, right? >> gretchen: both democrats and republicans said mitt romney won the debate. >> steve: most accurate polls are expected next week. instant polls. one pound found 67 percent of the voters thought mitt romney won and 25 percent thought president obama. was it a much-needed gamer. allor - author of the here comes the black helicopters . the loss of freedom. dick, how big of a bounce will mr. romney get? >> i would think four or five points. according to the current polls, that would take him from two or three behind to two or three ahead. in reality it will take him five nationally and put him in the lead significantly in florida and virge virge - virginia and a smaller lead in ohio. i did a study with my friend johnn, a fellow pollster and he looked at exit polls when voters came out of the voting booth. they were asked what is yourr party reference? democrats had a one point edge . went to 13 surveys done by the media in september, and he found in those, there was a combined 8 point democratic edge. those polls are 7 points wrong . so when they show in ohio th
realize this is the first time that we have ever agreed on anything? >> you know what, this is the right approach to go, larry. i think that mitt romney has opened up an avenue to pick up in the polls here. this plan is evolving into a flat tax. this one piece has legs to it. it has been out an hour. we can't really say. but what about the enormous cu s s in tax rates. that is kind of tough. when you cut tax rates to 22% and you pay for it by raising taxes by $2 million then we have a problem. that is a fair point. but let's look at somebody you who makes an income of $80,000. that perp gperson gets a big deduction off of his income. solar so, larry, it is something to fix this tax system. >> can i weigh in on this? >> here is the problem i have. i think this is going to get down to $140,000, $120,000 that was the number that paul ryan floated today. things that trouble me. i don't want middle class taxes to go up at all. so i'm worried about not just the mortgage deduction, the kiddy credit, health care deductions and earned income tax credits and i'm a little concerned, i would have to
is headed in the right direction, they're optimistic about this. if they're a romney person the country is headed in the wrong direction, they're not optimistic about the economy. the only number that got out of that bubble where we saw it wasn't just partisan was this idea is the economy in recovery, and that got to 57%. you can't get to 57% if you don't have actually folks that are on one side, you know, bleeding in and believing factually the economy is in recovery and factually the economy is in recovery. the argument now is of course should it be in a better recovery and i think even as you've had the romney campaign saying hey we're in recovery despite, that's been their new mantra. that's the one number that goes beyond the partisan liners. tony is right, on the direction of the country, on optimism on the economy in the next 12 months it is through the prism of their presidential vote that we're seeing people make, express their opinion on that. >> you know, chuck, the big number you've told us, the big demographic is what happens with women. i guess that's going to be a tough q
, since you are supporting romney, the candidate, who is running behind, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of three presidential debates. like this. >> frankly, i can't remember the last time there was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention because, frankly, the candidates are too well prepared. they're well scripted. >> reporter: and like this. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> reporter: but definitely, governor christie, definitely not like this. >> i'll tell you, bob, thursday morning you're going to be skramping your heads and saying, wow, we have a barn burner now for the next 33 days. >> reporter: because the thing is when you say that the president's senior advisor says stuff like this. >> they expect to come out of this with the race fundamentally changed. what does that mean? if it's going to fundamentally change, that means in seven or ten days from now you'll see states like ohio tied because that's what matters here. >> reporter: like they say governor christie,
romney is going to put y'all back in chains. >> brian: right. >> martha: southern accent that day, too. >> steve: he did. >> brian: the other thing is the president had to get prepared for the debate. paul ryan and joe biden had to carry their weight. it didn't really work too well. >> steve: you know how mitt romney prepared yesterday out in denver for the debate. he had the burrito bowl at chipotle. >> brian: right. >> steve: he said he usually goes with a burrito, but yesterday. >> martha: burrito bowl. let's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that the obama administration may be looking to move some of the gitmo detainees to american soil. the federal government plans to buy the thompson correctional center in illinois. at one point this prison was considered for housing gitmo detainees and there was a huge controversy based around that. many lawmakers outraged saying it would open the door for ultimately carrying out a gitmo transfer. house speaker john boehner said this, the unilateral decision to purchase the thompson prison, even though congress
. >> right now it's down to about 66% in trade obviously suggesting romney got a big boost. >> mini flash crash. >> among our political guests this morning ready to talk about the road to election today, arianna huffington will be our guest host. huffington "post" obviously has a left bent, but it was declaring romney won the debate. ken duberstein will join us, as well. >> i was reading some of your tweets last night, john, and i liked your tweet. i tell you what i took away from the entire debate because i want to let you say it, but i saw what's possible in a life spent without any alcohol. i saw what i could have possibly been -- i saw how i could have possibly been able to talk if i had all the brain cells that i started with. and that was what i came away with. that i just wish in a maybe i had considered that path maybe of being, you negotiation life of sobriety. anyway, what did you think, john? >> well, romney considered that path and he took that path, joe, and he tried to press his case last night. the challenge for him was to come out with the kind of aggression that could sco
that romney needs to be the instigator, he needs to be the aggressor. is that right and can he do it? >> i don't know if he needs to be the instigator. there has been clearly a lot of focus on the romney campaign. he needs to have a very solid performance and 2that's the mos important thing, that he makes his points in a solid and forceful way and if he does that are, i think and he will come out all right. but the idea that he needs to come in a have a debate defining moment in order for to be a success i don't think is right. >> is there one issue or theme that he has to hit home? >> he has to -- this race is about the economy and jobs. that's what people care about. and i think one of the distractions for the romney campaign has been that they have not been able to really pound that message day in and day out. if they can come back to that, it will be successful for them. >> what did the president have to do, beyond look presidential, i imagine? >> both of these guys have to play offense. so it is not going to be sort of a run out of the clock opportunity for either guy. the president isrd
on food stamps. governor romney is right. they brought in frozen food cases and they're doing well. >> they raise price target to pier 1. >> i spent so much there last saturday. >> there's a great article about meningitis in "the new york times. a competitor, there are problems with contaminations. regeneron will go high or this. >> and calling a dead-cat bounce on. >> every cat has its day. >> what's coming up today? >> gold. we're going gold, gold, gold. we have a terrific executive and sandstone is the way to play gold as we go to 2,000 for gold and 1800 is the next stop. >> 1785 right now as i'm looking and this sunday, eagles and steelers. >> i don't know, man. people are starting to say that the eagles could be an upset. >> yea. >> i say dream on, and i like the eagles. >> have a great weekend, jim. see you next week. >> what does this morning's key job numbers tell us about the stock? an interview with jan hatzius from goldman. hi. i'm henry winkler. and i'm here to tell homeowners that are 62 and older about a great way to live a better retirement. it's called a reverse mor
would write a bill says you can't have right to work. >> say romney wins, how quickly, in your estimation, do things turn around? what happens? what is the shift? to the extent, can you impact any of this? >> that's the caveat i was going to give you. >> i think whoever is elected president in a month from now, they will have to do major, major stuff. obviously you got two different ideologies, and i think if romney were elected, he's going to have to do major stuff, absorb major pain, but hopefully create a base from which the country can grow again. i don't think increasing meld i care is going to increase the growth rate of the country, and create more jobs, as an example. >> flip it around. if you take some of those things away, there is an argument to be made, and maybe you don't agree with it, there's going to be some pain at least in the short term. what does that do to the economy, in your views on where we ultimately go? >> i basically think that the last five years has been all about somebody sticking your finger in the dike. they didn't solve the problem. they stuck
